BBC BLASTED for promoting video cartoon saying “there’s no such thing as a pure Brit” (Video)

BBC is under fire for publishing and promoting what has been called by critics a “dishonest” video cartoon stating that the United Kingdom “was multicultural before curry and carnival.”

The BBC video was designed to engage teenage school students aged 14 to 16 on the charged topic of immigration, but it has instead sparked fierce backlash from many UK politicians, who have accused the authors of the cartoon of clear political bias.

The backlash has caused the UK state run BBC to pull the educational video as the media channel faced accusations of insufficient objectivity and breach of impartiality rules.

Various part of the animation have been re-uploaded by a variety of users on YouTube.

During the video, the voiceover is heard claiming that “we [Britain] were multicultural long before curry and carnival” and that “there’s no such thing as a pure Brit.”

British right-wing political figures hit back at the comments after it was posted online.

Nigel Farage, an MEP and former UKIP head, blasted the video as “insultingly simplistic, misleading, dishonest, and irresponsible.”

Lord Green of Deddington, who chairs Migration Watch UK, a think tank, called the clip “shallow, unbalanced and unrepresentative,” arguing that Britain has never been a nation of immigrants.  He later praised the BBC’s “refreshing” decision to take down what he called “unacceptably biased” material.

A BBC spokesman told The Standardthat the video, part of a series of films called Don’t Hate the Debate, was intended to help teachers engage schoolchildren in debates on pressing issues. He admitted, however, that “further efforts could have been made” to provide a “more diverse range of opinions” on the topic.

The next thing the BBC will be telling us, is that we don’t have a culture in the UK – no going down the pub, no picnic and BBQ’s at festivals or parks in the summer, no eating sandwiches watching cricket on a village green, no history of folk music (usually performed in a pub where copious supplies of alcohol are provided).

The BBC also says there is no such thing as perfectly pure and healthful air, so we shouldn’t be concerned about air pollution.

The British royal family is descended from an immigrant. George the first was German.

George Soros should be very happy. His people’s agenda is progressing nicely, at the expense of the existing cultures and people who are a part of them. Meanwhile, Israel’s culture is becoming more exclusive (and intolerant of racial minorities) than ever before.
